A novel by British female writer Daphne Du Maurier published in 1938, a best-seller and a masterpiece of gothic literature. Since its publication it has been a great success and many people remember its first line: Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. Alfred Hitchcock filmed a cinema version of the novel (you can watch it here: Rebecca movie version).

The heroine meets and falls in love with Maxim de Winter, a rich Englishman whose beautiful wife has recently died under tragic circumstances. To her surprise and joy, Maxim proposes to her and they return to live in Manderley, his beautiful house in Cornwall. But, Maxim has never really gotten over his first wife, who despite being dead still dominates him and the house.
